This is the preferred submission method, as it has the least environmental impact. Email your script in Microsoft Word, Final Draft or as a PDF. I will then send you an electronic invoice via PayPal, which allows you to pay with any major credit card. Scripts submitted from outside the United States require an additional fee to cover international return postage.

If you are unable to submit electronically, you may submit by snail mail, please email me for the submission address. Please enclose a check for the appropriate amount payable to Jonathan Dorf.

Turnaround time is approximately 2-3 weeks, though rush service is available for a supplemental fee, depending on the turnaround required and my availability. Email me.
